RECIPE BACKSTORY
I make this recipe anytime I have a large party and it is always a big hit. I got the recipe from a tabloid magazine years ago, and it was originally credited as "Hot Stix" taken from the Sunset Recipe Annual 1997 Edition. I always marinade the chicken overnight and then grill the skewers on our outdoor grill. They only take a few minutes to cook through, turning once.
